The Bee - Poem by Suzette Richards

Ever since antiquity,
it delivered quality -
golden and healing.
Man has been stealing
from the bee;
thinking it was free:
From the hives rent,
never paying a cent.

With our GMO we destroy
and use excuses as decoy.
Greed is in our hearts
and reason departs.
Poisoning ourselves –
on supermarket shelves.
It no longer heals.
Nature never deals!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Albert Einstein once said: “If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live. No more bees, no more pollination … no more men! ”
